Hot on the heels of a very successful talk last week we are happy to be able to share details on the next instalment in this year’s evening lecture series. This time we’re looking at the latest in cutting-edge powerplant technology, a subject very close to my own heart!

Our speaker, Patrick Donnellan, is from GE and will speaking to the society on the GE9X engine. The talk is titled “GE9X Design – Advancing with Technology” which suggests it will cover some fascinating ground. Patrick is the Product Support Model Leader for the GE9X programme, and has over 30 years’ experience in his field.

We hope this topic will be of interest to our members and look forward to seeing many of your there. The attached poster will furnish further details.
